Did your doctor prescribe 500 mg. antibiotics with the knowlege that you were pregnant? If yes, then you are doing the right thing by taking them because you need to protect your baby from whatever infection you may have. If not, stop taking them and contact your doctor immediately. There are safe antibiotics to take during pregnancy.
I know it is so hard not to, but don't worry about having a miscarriage. A miscarriage is spontaneous and almost never with anyone or anything to blame. It's a hard pill to swallow, but when you miscarry, it is usually a good thing because there was probably something wrong. So don't worry. Just take care of yourself and be sure to seek prenatal care. That's the best thing you can do to have a healthy child.
The safety to pregnancy actually typically depends more on the type of antibiotic rather than the dosage. Some antibiotics are typically thought to be safe during pregnancy. Others are not. These medications do not usually cause miscarriages, but birth defects.
Miscarriages may be caused in many ways - like the answerer above posted, usually they are spontaneous and caused by a problem with the fetus or uterus. Other potential causes of miscarriages include trauma or cervical incompetence.
If you are concerned about miscarriage, please see your OB/Gyn for evaluation.

The traditional designations are: During the first trimester - abortion (spontaneous abortion, if you want to avoid ambiguity) During the second trimester - miscarriage During the third trimester - stillbirth
You can, however it is not usually recommended because of the increases risk of miscarriage during the first trimester. Travelling during the second trimester is more recommended because of the much lower risk of miscarriage.
Not if you miscarry in the first trimester.
Not unless your doctor prescribed it. Pregnant women sometimes have to take antibiotics because the alternative would be worse for them and the baby.
Yes you can have a miscarriage at 3 months pregnant, although only a very small percentage do at this point. Not really true, it is not a "small percentage," compared to the number of miscarriages. True, miscarriages occur during the 1st 3 months, and many do not even realize they were pregnant. It is not always a "real" pregnancy - sometimes an unfertilized ovum will implant, and then sluff off. More miscarriages happen during the 2nd trimester than the 3rd trimester. Technically, during the 3rd trimester is is a "spontaneous abortion" not a "miscarriage". But if you are "at 3 months" you are right in the zone of "most often". If you are trying to stay pregnant, and worried about it - see your doctor. Otherwise, good care of your own health is good care of the health of the baby.
You can safely take antibiotics prescribed by your doctor when you are pregnant. The reason they are cautious during pregnancy is because it is not tested on pregnant women but I have never heard of a miscarriage due to antibiotics. You have to remember that they only prescribe it to a pregnant women if the alternative, the illness, is the more dangerous choice.
Well, at that time it gets a bit difficult to separate between miscarriage and premature delivery, but sure.
Depending on your health and any additional complications up to 15-20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage during the first trimester up into the early part of the second trimester. Once you have reached the half way point of your gestation (midway through the second trimester) the percentage normally drops to 1%.
Not unless you miscarry in the second trimester since that is when you first can feel movement.
Yes, some times pregnant women may bleed for a day or 2 during pregnancy and it will be perfectly normal, but CHECK with your doctor to make sure your bleeding is not a miscarriage which occurs mostly during the 1st trimester.
You can have a miscarriage at any time during a pregnancy.
